Issue the correct periods of notice



This guide tells you about the required notice periods that an employer or employee must give, whatever the reason for the employee leaving. The notice period will be determined either by law or by the terms of the contract with your employee, but it can be varied in some circumstances.

This guide covers contractual and statutory notice periods, how the notice can be varied, pay during the notice period, and what happens if either party withdraws notice. It also covers notice periods for employees on family-related leave including maternity, paternity, adoption, parental bereavement leave, and shared parental or parental leave.
